It’s ‘ho ho ho’ all round in this fun novelty book! Poor Reindeer, he’s about to go out to deliver the presents when the pepper in Santa’s soup makes him sneeze and his nose flies off. They must find it course and a chase ensues in which the nose turns up in some very unusual places – on a polar bear’s onesie, looking like a button; as a bauble on a robin’s Christmas tree; and concealed as a grape in a penguin’s fruit salad – before it’s safely returned and Santa and Reindeer fly off on their deliveries wishing everyone Happy Christmas as they go. Nick Sharratt’s illustrations are always guaranteed to make children smile and you can give Reindeer’s nose a squeak on every page too! ~ Andrea Reece
